WATERTRANSITION PLANNING

AquaVest develops creditble and affordable transition pathways towards (more) sustainable regional water systems and guides investments in water infrastructure.

Complexity requires AI

Transition planning requires looking 20 to 30 years into the future. This is a challenge not only because of the complexity of the water system but also because  the future holds many uncertainties. Some of those uncertainties are related to the impact of climate change. This is why we apply artificial intelligence. It allows us to quickly run different scenario’s to develop an investment strategy that is robust in the face of many uncertainties.

Based on running a number of scenario’s AquaVest identifies the required infrastructure investments to meet the future demands for water in a sustainable way.  The software then phases the investments over time as efficiëntly as possible. This leads to CAPEX savings of up to 20%. With capital intensive investments this can significantly improve cost recovery.

Policy development

We support the development of new policies in the water and nature conservation space. We can quickly evaluate the financial impact of altered taxation levels on all stakeholders in the region. We can identify the financial triggers to encourage a more sustainable use and reuse of water. AquaVest considers a phased implementation of new policies (policies that become more strict over time). This way, AquaVest informs the development of new policies as part of transition planning. Examples of taxation measures we look at are groundwater levies, effluent discharge levies and water prices based on quality (drinking water, effluents, etc.).

“Agristo is positively surprised by the working method, the holistic approach of a fairly extensive issue. The deployed model allows for a quick and clear way to assess the impact of many different parameters, both physical, economic and technical. This leads to either unexpected, innovative insights or confirms earlier expectations or feelings.” Antoon Wallays, Director Agristo, Tilburg, The Netherlands.
